There is a wide range of cosmetic procedures which people have completed each and every year, some more commonly than others. With each individual procedure there is a certain ideal candidate which surgeons and cosmetic staff are looking for, and if you are looking for certain procedures then it makes sense to first take a look at whether or not you are an ideal candidate for it. Today we are going to take a look at chin augmentation surgery, what it is and what kind of person would benefit greatly from having such a surgery.
This is not one of the most common surgeries but it is still one which is performed on a frequent basis, and here is a little more information about it.
What Is Chin Augmentation Surgery?
Let’s start by looking into what exactly chin augmentation surgery is. This is a procedure which is carried out under general anesthetic that seeks to change the shape of a person’s chin. This is done by taking a scalpel and cutting the skin at the jawline, followed by the insertion of a silicon implant which will act as the new shape of the chin. Sometimes the implant is simply slid under the skin to form the new shape, at other times we see the implant screwed into the jawbone for a stronger hold and a larger impact.
Who Is An Ideal Candidate For This Surgery?
When it comes to who exactly is more appropriate for this surgery, the first place to start is a general consensus of those who are fit and well for any general surgery. This means that it should be a healthy and fit person with no underlying health conditions which could be provoked or risked through the general anesthetic. Secondly we have to look at a patient who is of sound mind and how completely understands exactly what this surgery is all about, what risks are associated with it and what the process is going to look like. And finally we have to consider someone who has strong bone density, if they are going to have the implant screwed into the jaw. These are the general considerations for finding out whether or not surgery is appropriate for the candidate.
Something which many people will ask about is the recovery time for this kind of surgery, which is often much lengthier than you may believe. Ultimately because of the fact that an incision has been made into the jawline, there is going to be some seriously heavy bruising here and that will take a week or more to completely disappear. Those who have had this procedure will also have to ensure that they are taking care of themselves with regards to exercise, and what they eat. Tough to chew foods just aren’t a good idea because of the damage which it can do to the chin, and that is why the weeks after the surgery require pureed and soft to chew foods.
